What’s the best day of the week to list your house for sale ?

What’s the best day to list a house for-sale? It’s Friday.

In fact, by listing a home on Friday, you may bring in an extra $5,000 to the sales price, according to a study of homes listed for sale last year conducted by the real estate brokerage Redfin.

Homes listed on Fridays tended to sell for 99.1 percent of the seller’s original asking price. That represented the highest percentage of any other day of the week.

“You get four times the traffic on the day of debut than any other time of the week, and you only get one chance,” Glenn Kelman, president and CEO of Redfin, told The Wall Street Journal.

Homes listed on Friday also tend to sell the quickest, within 81 days on average.

Another good day to list a home:

Tuesdays, which generate the most interest for home tours, according to the study. Some experts note that Tuesday is a big planning day for many people, who are already thinking ahead of what homes they’ll want to view on the weekend.

So, what’s the worst day of week to list a home then? Sunday. Homes listed on Sundays sell for 98.4 percent of their initial asking price — still not bad.
